Who is On Late Night Tonight in Comedy: Week of September 17, 2018

Who’s on Late Night Tonight in Comedy?

This week in late night starts out with some late night talk show hosts being absent on Monday night. Live, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Late Late Show with James Corden and with Trevor Noah are all not showing up for work on Monday night, but they all have a great excuse. All of these hosts will be at the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards because their shows have all been nominated for the Outstanding Variety Talk Series Emmy Award. Stephen Colbert’s show is also nominated for Outstanding Writing in a Variety Series. The Primetime Emmy Awards are Monday night starting at 8pm on NBC and the 70th annual ceremony will be hosted by ‘s Weekend Update news team of Colin Jost and Michael Che. The Emmys’ arrival pre-show starts at 7:30 on NBC. The not-nominated will be doing a new show on Monday night, but remember to set your DVRs accordingly because Monday’s Tonight Show may have a later start-time if the Emmy Awards run late. To see which of comedy’s stars have already picked up Emmy Awards this year, check out the Interrobang’s coverage of both Night 1 and Night 2 of the Emmys’ early ceremony, the 2018 Creative Arts Awards.

The rest of the week in late night is filled with brilliant comedy legends and today’s hottest comedians as guests on the late night talk show couches. Monday night on , Scottish comic Daniel Sloss returns to the show. Daniel holds the record for the most appearances on Conan by a stand up comedian and on Monday he adds to his record with what should be another memorable performance. Daniel Sloss’ brand new Netflix hour special, “Daniel Sloss: Live Shows” was released on the streaming juggernaut last week and it’s currently available to enjoy.

On Tuesday, a true comedy legend, Tracey Ullman will be on the Late Late Show with James Corden and also on the Daily Show on Thursday night. That’s a booking definitely worth staying up late to watch. Also on Tuesday, welcomes one of the most popular comics working today, Sebastian Maniscalco to Late Night on NBC. He’s appeared on every show in late night and on Tuesday, Seth welcomes him back. Sebastian Maniscalco will be promoting his book “Stay Hungry” which is available everywhere and “Stay Hungry” is also the name of Sebastian’s latest tour which has dates across the country through the end of the year.

Check the full listings below for more details.

Wednesday, Jimmy Fallon welcomes to the Tonight Show. Kevin could be part of the biggest comedy movie of the year when his new film “Night School” is released nationwide on September 28th. Kevin Hart co-stars with another comedian whose career is skyrocketing right now, Tiffany Haddish. “Night School” also stars Taran Killam , Rob Riggle and Ben Schwartz.

Ending the week, Thursday, it’s Tiffany Haddish’s turn to promote “Night School” when she appears on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Jack Black returns to the Tonight Show on Thursday to plug his film with a really long and odd title from the novel that it’s based on “The House with a Clock in Its Walls.” Also on Thursday, one of our favorites, from “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “The Goldbergs” is back on Conan. Team Coco also welcomes one of the most unique comedy acts on Thursday night, the musical comedy trio, The Cooties.

On Saturday, we’ll be one week away from the return of Saturday Night Live and we’ll get the final SNL repeat episode of the variety series’ long summer hiatus. Former SNL cast member who has reached icon status since leaving the show, is back to host this hilariously weird encore episode of Saturday Night Live. Then SNL returns live for its Season 44 premiere on Saturday, September 29th.
